Matrix by Hunter Seamons using Final Cut Pro (SHN & FLAC>AIFF>Final Cut>WAV>FLAC)
November 16, 2008


1) There were lots of fluctuations in the SBD levels and mix throughout Alabama Getaway, so there are areas of weirdness in the vocals and instrumentation. I adjusted the levels to smooth some places out. Everything is pretty copacetic by the beginning of GSET. A level adjustment was made during Peggy-O.

2) Fades and an "audience-only" patch were used to create a seamless AUD track, although the latter half of Drums is cut in the AUD. The other AUD source available (shnid=11589) has a cut in most of the same area, so I could not patch the gap.

3) In addition to the aforementioned SBD cuts, a large portion of Space was missing from the SBD, as well as part of the UJB intro, which had not been patched in the original source. The show is now complete.

4) The AUD helps bring out Garcia's guitar, which was a bit low in the SBD mix.

I wrote a longer review of this great little show on another other audience source. Not wanting to to sound redundant I will offer this advice.
Listen to this show!
This matrix sounds awesome, thank you Hunter, giving Phil even greater clairty and the drums sound quite good too.Phil really is a monster on this night with Brent also playing at the top of his game as well.

I will talk more about the awesome PITB suite. This one starts off getting way out there,as it is reminiscent of version's from ten years earlier, as they go off into the statosphere for almost 15 minutes. Then we head off into another relam with Billy & Mickey going tribal on us. I believe Mickey is playing his tar, which is wicked cool and you can almost feel it on this matrix. This is folowed by a long space that is really quite nice and melodic too, which seques in a wonderous Uncle John's Band.
The band really makes this version sparkle with great harmonies and effort by all.
They then finish off this monster suite with a passionate Playin' Reprise.
A beauitful Brokedown Palace sends us off into the chilly mountain evening .
